No Cure From the Doc

April 26 vs. Toronto Blue Jays


KW's Daily Special:
Medium-Well Hamburger
Pretty good starting pitching, but quiet Sox bats late didn't help their cause.

Short Take:   Jose Contreras finally had a good start, but unfortunately it was wasted, as Roy Halladay was just a little bit better and got the best of the White Sox.

Coming off an awesome victory on an unusually and unexpected cold night at the ballpark last night, the Sox looked to take the rubber game of the series against the Blue Jays. Despite solid starting pitching from Jose Contreras and some timely hitting and good defense, Halladay got the best of the Sox, and the Jays took the rubber game, 4-3 in front of 31,459 fans at U.S. Cellular Field (i.e., Kenny's Burger Joint).

Things started out a little shaky for Contreras, who surrendered two runs before some of the fans had reached their seats. With one out, Aaron Hill singled to center and after Armando Rios flew out, Vernon Wells singled to right, moving Hill to third. Adam Lind followed with a double to deep right, scoring both Hill and Wells for the early 2-0 lead.

The Sox were resilient and came right back a couple innings later, though. Brent Lillibridge led off the Sox's half of the first with a double and he dented the dish on Josh Fields' single to right, cutting the Jays' lead in half. The score remained 2-1 until the bottom of the third when the Sox ultimately took the lead. Josh Fields led off with a walk and after The Carlos Quentin flied out, Jim Thome singled, moving Fields to third. With runners at the corners, Jermaine Dye grounded out to the pitcher, moving Thome into scoring position. Paul Konerko then doubled to deep left, scoring Fields and Thome for the 3-2 lead.

Toronto managed to tie the game in their next at-bat. After Lyle Overbay flew out to TCQ to lead off the inning, Rod Barajas doubled. With Barajas standing on second, Travis Snider reached on an infield single, moving Barajas to third. Sox killer Marco Scutaro grounded out to Contreras and Barajas came home on the play, tying the game at three a piece.

Scott Linebrink relieved Jose Contreras after seven, and things started rocky for him immediately. Vernon Wells doubled to deep left and Adam Lind reached base via the free pass. Scott Rolen then singled to left, scoring Wells and untying the game, 4-3. With Scott Downs pitching the bottom of the ninth, Paul Konerko and A.J. Pierzynski went quietly. Brian Anderson, who already had two hits on the afternoon, singled, but it was too little too late, as Alexei Ramirez flew out to end the mild threat and the game.

Losing two of three to the Jays, the Sox look to start a new winning streak tomorrow night at Kenny's Burger Joint against surprising Seattle. The Mariners will throw Chris Jakubauskas (1-2, 7.11) to begin the three game series, and the Sox will counter with John Danks (2-0, 0.95), who has been nothing short of dazzling so far this season. The first pitch is slated for 7:11p and the game will air on WCIU.

Critic's Corner:
 Three stars today, one for each run the Sox scored.
